OTRA’s founders, Isabel Corne and Sven Bols where moved to do something when they saw the persisting degrading working conditions for truck drivers in Europe. They decided to find out how technology and digital tools in particular could improve the industry. That’s how OTRA was born, as a solution to help fleet managers optimise driving and resting times for truck drivers in the most secured and conveniently placed parkings across the busiest European corridors.
Today’s context in the truck transportation industry
The hauling industry is facing many problems, driver and truck parking shortages, lower and lower margins and more laws to follow. We are also convinced that the lack of data is crippling both truck parking operators and Transport companies’ businesses.
We strongly believe that gathering and analysing accurate data will help Parking operators attract more investors to build more parking areas and thus fill the gaps across Europe. Call it a virtuous circle! Likewise, the same lack of data and digitalisation in Transport Companies dents efforts to improve efficiency and therefore bottom lines.
“OTRA has invested significantly in digital, real-time solutions for all the actors in the industry and 2023 will see the impact of the hard work started two years ago. The benefits of our forward thinking solutions will become clear for all our users. Be ready for more and better!” Says Sven Bols when asked about what 2023 has in store for OTRA and its clients.
OTRA, a sustainable company you can trust
As a company, we value straightforwardness – we don’t skirt around issues and we communicate with transparency. This is, we believe, the necessary springboard for a great collaboration. We all work together to make the industry better: parking operators, transport companies, hardware security partners, drivers, and us.
Last, but certainly not least we are accountable partners, you can count on us and our growing team of experts based in all corners of Europe.
So, one thing’s for sure 2023 promises to be a hell of a ride, so buckle up and we’ll see you On the Road Again after the Holidays
Happy Holidays to you all!
Isabel & Sven
